Musicians speak many languages. Their native tongue, maybe a few others, music as a language itself, and of course they speak... "musician".

In this exclusive, award winning producer, Fab Dupont, explores the fascinating language musicians have developed over centuries in their natural habitat.

Learn complex terms like "Deep Pockets", "Playing Outside", "Playing Changes", "Block Chords", "Open Voicing" as well as important lifestyle choices like which room you should park the producer and their girlfriend/boyfriend in.

After watching this video, you'll be able to communicate with the hippest of pocket players grooving deep on the back beat out in the live room, and even the sit in players who improvise their riffs in the vamp way outside after the scat singer does the count off at the head of the first standard of your next gig… Ya dig?

Ha ha ha so funny and very instructive ! Being a French dude, I don't known if we have as much as all these expressions in Molière's language, Fab?

That was great and funny..especially Vamp....I knew half of them. Can not t even imagine someone stating a section to play in another language. I guess that is called winging it?
